Being a community bank, we’re able to offer services that are just more personal. Offering our customers membership into our Prime Time Club is one of them. The membership not only provides access to a variety of free or discounted services, it can be your ticket to some truly memorable experiences.
Oh, the Places You’ll Go
We try to keep a balance in our group travel experiences. In addition to the trips that involve relying on coach services and flying, we accommodate members who are only interested in day trips and those who want to drive places on their own.
The Prime Time Club brings you together with others in the community who share similar financial, social and travel interests. We’re able to buy tickets and arrange transportation at group discount rates to and from a variety of local venues: Broadway show performances at the Paramount Theatre here in Aurora to baseball games in Chicago, Wisconsin and St. Louis, Mo.
Among our more popular events are the FREE Rules of Road refresher courses, which help members prepare for their written driver’s test, and our two-day, AARP Smart Driver program. This longer course leads to a certificate you can present to your insurance company in exchange for a discount on your premiums.
Where many of our members see the greatest value, however, is in the longer trips we plan. For instance, in 2019, we will be heading East for a weeklong “Chesapeake Bay Getaway” (April 24–May 1, 2019). The Prime Time Club will also be traveling to Iceland next summer (July 27–August 2, 2019) and in the fall experience a “Pacific Coastal Cruise” (October 12–21, 2019). As with the day trips, we make all the arrangements, including booking the transportation, accommodations and day tours. For members, it’s a worry-free way of seeing the best of what the world has to offer.
For me, one rewarding aspect of being the director of the program goes beyond interacting with the travelers; also watching everyone enjoying themselves is fulfilling. It’s seeing those who’ve joined us for the first time without knowing anyone return home having made new acquaintances and connections within the community. Traveling beyond their daily routines literally makes the world a little smaller.
Whether you would benefit from the discounted banking services, are transitioning toward a life of increased leisure time or find yourself at a time in your life where you would like to meet new people, consider joining the Prime Time Club. The Club has been offered to customers for 36+ years. Currently, we are 6,200 members strong, and there is always room for one more.
